My Number 3 C5 - Complete
« on: 27, April, 2011 - 20:08:41 »
Hi all just picked up number 3, C5. This one I got of ebay (very good price)and its got lots of extras never fitted. It includes both mirrors including plates, front & rear indicators, 65aHr battery, tool kit, horn & mudguards.

POD not working but also given a spare and the motor does drives so we will see. Might sell number 2 as got a few interested friends that are converting to having a C5.






regards
Lance (don't tell the wife)

Hi all, C5 Stripped down and now refurbed the frame with all new bearings, re-greased and ready for the body shell. Also sorted the motor out as it was a bit grindy... I wounder why!!!!! :o :o :o :o :o :o

Also replace the wall bracket in the garage to house the 3 of them.

Love that racking...looks good having them all stacked up like that - keeps them safe and damage free  8)

The restoration seems to be coming along nicely as well  :)

Hi Dave, Any time mate, also have been trying to look at doing a northern run but we are a bit hillier than down south ;D ;D ;D and its hard finding a suitable location, some have mentioned Southport / Blackpool due to long promenades
